Introduction to the Design of Small-Scale Embedded Systems.
This (now a little old) book has a more theoretical approach. Its
chapters go deep into a range of important topics, e.g. memory
data conversion, numerical routines, low power supply, and design
methodologies. It is useful for students and practicing engineers
who want to gain a deeper understanding of the main issues impacting embedded
